    Pace New Engine Prep and Oil Priming Service (most commonly performed on long block crate engines that do NOT include an intake manifold)

    The performance, drivability and longevity of your new engine are determined with proper engine preparation. New & remanufactured engines come to us without oil and with minimal assembly lubrication. To insure/enhance quality and dependability, the following procedure(s) are preformed prior to final engine dress and shipping.

    • All external engine bolts, fasteners and pipe plugs are checked for proper torque spec.
    • Pipe plugs are added as needed.
    • Bolt holes are checked with proper bolt size.
    • Cylinder head bolts are checked for proper torque spec. Bolts are NOT re-torqued but checked slightly below spec (excludes any fasteners requiring torque angle procedure).
    • Harmonic balancer is checked for exact TDC (top dead center) location and timing pointer is modified/adjusted to correct location. We commonly see up to a 4 degree variance which can cause internal engine damage.
    • Valvetrain is disassembled and we apply a coating of zinc enhanced assembly lube to all metal to metal surfaces.
    • Install oil filter and fill crankcase with break-in oil.
    • During the oil priming process the crankshaft is rotated in ¼ turns for two full rotations. This insures complete oil gallery alignment throughout the engine and gives the camshaft a 360 degree coating of break-in grease.
    • Rocker arms and valve train is adjusted.
    • All external engine ports are covered and engine is bagged and re-crated.

    We now offer this professional service package with the purchase of a new crate engine. We understand that money being spent for this service is sometimes hard to justify because it is something that you just don't see or hold but never the less it has become very popular because of power gains and longevity found with proper dyno break in. We believe this procedure is very critical on a new crate engine and cannot be done in the garage due to the proper loads applied to the engine by a dynamometer.

    This service includes all the steps performed in our New Engine Prep and Oil Priming Service

    • Engine is installed on the dynamometer. 
    • Cooling and fuel system is filled and checked for leaks. 
    • Engine oil level is re-checked. 
    • Engine is started and timing is set to manufacturer’s specification. 
    • Engine is run with various loads applied by the dyno. This eliminates ring chatter which can cause non-repairable damage to the cylinder walls. 
    • Engine is run approximately 30 minutes or more and then allowed to cool for final inspection and re-packaging.
